Coconut Macaroon Recipe

Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and so coconutty!

Since my mom and husband both love coconut macaroons, I started on my own macaroon journey: baking...and eating several batches! I'm so pleased with this recipe and I know you will be too.

These macaroons are gluten free and dairy free, so if you are cutting back on gluten and dairy, they are a perfect, sweet treat. You will love this recipe because it requires only 4 ingredients and it is so quick and easy to put together.

Now that the holiday season is approaching, bake a batch of these remarkably delicious macaroons and wow your family and friends!

Sadia Hussain




45 Minutes


  • 2 egg whites, beaten until frothy

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups coconut, sweetened, desiccated (I use Baker's)

  • 3/4 cup sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F.

  2. In a large bowl, mix egg whites and salt and set aside.

  3. In a food processor, fitted with a metal blade, whiz 2 cups of coconut with sugar to break down the coconut into smaller shreds resembling course crumbs.

  4. Add 2 cups ground coconut to egg whites and salt.

  5. Add the 1 cup remaining coconut to the bowl and mix until combined.

  6. Make mounds, place on baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.

  7. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

Tips and Bits

Once cooled, you can dip the bottom of the macaroons in melted semi-sweet or dark chocolate.

You can tweak the sugar to your taste.
